The Indispensable Guest

After the hasty departure of our quivery guest
We buckled buckets- bedlam, in a waterfest
Rain-sourced boreholes frowned at the innocent queue
That curved and curved till it drew letter Q
Masters bothered yet helpless as scarcity knocked
Leaving every hostel steamless and seemingly locked

We held our breath, six days, nothing handsome
As deep darkness held our sight and might to ransom
